Factory reset

  • If you lose the administrator password, you can no longer change your Tap's configuration.
  • In this case, you must erase the current configuration and recover the factory configuration using the hardware factory reset procedure, presented here.
  • This feature can be disabled in IoTize Studio from menu IoTized Application\Tap\Configuration Access control\By hardware signal but it is strongly advised to keep the default value 'Yes' during development (otherwise reconfiguration won't be possible).

Software 'factory reset'

If you can connect to the Tap as administrator, you can do a factory reset from IoTize Studio: "Configuration" -> "Clear (Factory Reset)".

Hardware 'factory reset'

The PA7 pad on the PCB of your Tap must be linked to ground (PB1) during power-on to perform a factory reset:


  1. Power off the module.
  2. Connect the HW_FR signal (PA1.7) to the ground (PA2.1) and keep them connected.
  3. Power on the module.
  4. Wait for 10 seconds.
  5. Power off the module.
  6. Disconnect the wire between HW_FR and GND.
  7. Power on the module again: the default configuration is now reloaded.

After factory reset

The factory reset values are:

  • WiFi mode: Access Point
  • WiFi password: ABCD1234
  • WiFi network: TAP_
  • IP number:
  • Service name/Port: 2000
  • Network mode: Access Point
  • SSID: TAP_xxx where xxx are the last digits of the Serial Nnumber.
  • Studio | Configuration version: 0.0.0. This must be 0.0.1 or higher.

A factory reset removes the Sensor demo configuration.

If you want to use your current project to reconfigure the Tap, check these options before you Test Connection, Configure, then Test | Reboot Tap.

  • Reconnect to the Taps WiFi network.
  • App AAR to access the Sensor demo: (the default app is Tap manager
